Lions - Good Luck Minis®
Lions are considered vulnerable throughout their range, which includes most of sub-Saharan Africa, except for regions of thick rainforest or heavily settled areas. Lions also maintain a tiny enclave in northwest India, the last remnant of Asian Lions. Lions were once more widespread in Africa, and their range extended into more of Asia and even Europe. Since a pride needs around 100 square miles to support itself, however, Lion populations have declined as human populations have expanded. Their numbers have diminished by 90% in Africa over the last 75 years. Because of their popularity, massive conservation and education efforts are underway to allow humans and lions to co-exist.
